Apostille Birth Certificate UK

A UK birth certificate is an official document that records the details of a person's birth in the United Kingdom. It contains information such as the person's full name, date and place of birth, gender, parents' names and occupations, and registration district. The General Register Office (GRO) issues the birth certificate, an important document to establish a person's identity, citizenship, and age.

Different types of UK birth certificates are available, including a standard certificate, a short certificate, and a full certificate. The standard certificate contains all the information recorded in the register, while the short certificate only includes the person's name, sex, date of birth, and registration district. The full certificate contains all the information on the standard certificate plus the parents' details.

The UAE holds a string of opportunities for ambitious individuals worldwide. Business growth, trade, employment, & academics all attract students and working individuals, compelling them to move to the Emirates. This includes many people born and raised in the UK who wish to explore better opportunities in the land of sun and sand.

However, moving from the UK to the UAE requires you to apostille your birth certificate. Whether you're having a destination wedding in Dubai, permanently moving to Sharjah, attending a college in Abu Dhabi, or acquiring dual citizenship in the UAE, there's no going around it. The official documentation is required for all major and minor processes, including immigration, job application, college admissions, or business investments.

Apostille Birth Certificate UK

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK (FCO) has been replaced by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).

You can get certain official UK documents Apostilled by requesting the FCDO Office verify that the certificate's signature, stamp, or seal is from UK government officials. They will verify the document, including whether the signature, stamp, or seal is authentic. Then, they will legalize the UK birth certificate by attaching a stamped official certificate (an 'Apostille') to it.

Foreign authorities typically request the Apostille Certificate, and local bodies accept the credentials for official purposes outside the UK. All the replacement Apostille birth certificates issued by FCDO are completely guaranteed certified copies suitable for all official purposes. Some reasons behind acquiring a certification include applying for a marriage certificate, an academic course, and a passport.

Note that an apostille only certifies the authenticity of your birth certificate for use in another country that is a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention. You may need to follow additional steps if you need to use your birth certificate in a non-convention country.
